Congratulations to local pool player Raymond Stockman after he was crowned the Irish Blackball Association Seniors Individual Champion.

The Coleraine man picked up the title following his 7-1 win over Con Price in the final at the Ardboyne Hotel in Navan on Sunday.

After a walkover in the first round ‘Stocky’ edged out Martin Rothwell 6-4 in the second round.

That set up a quarter final showdown with Peter Noonan, and the local player eased past him winning 6-1 in the end.

The semi final clash with Pat Merrigan didn’t cause him much concern either as he ran out 7-0 winner.

“Winning the final 7-1 to become the Irish Seniors champion makes the miles I travel for pool worthwhile, the journey home will be sweet,” Raymond told Times Sport following his victory in the final.
